Tobermory’s doors opened in 1798, going on to become an attractive addition to the colourful Isle of Mull, its home on the west coast of Scotland. This sea-swept distillery produces a range of whiskies, but when the bottle displays a Ledaig label it means there’s peat inside. That’s this expression, a smoky number made all the more irresistible by its time in a sherry cask.
Heady, sweet campfire aromas envelop the nose, before a fiery crackle of honey and dark chocolate dance across the tongue and leave long waves of dried herb and black pepper that vanish with a puff of smoke.
Enjoy with a popular South African delicacy: biltong (salted, cured meat), or freshly shucked oysters. It’s a delight when paired with sea salt-infused dark chocolate…the campfire smoke and sherry really come to life.
